his new relationship with kim jong un. >> he is my friend. i don't condone what he does. as far as person to person, he is my friend. >> the trip was planned and filmed by vice media for an upcoming hbo series. the group toured pyongyang and unexpectedly hung out with the young leader, seen courtside during the exhibition game and later sharing dinner and drinks. kim, reported to be a big fan of the chicago bulls during their h heyday. >> one thing he asked me to give obama something to say. he wants obama to do one thing. call him. he said, if you can, dennis, i don't want to do war. he said that to me. >> a request that's getting the attention of the state department. >> mr. rodman does not represent the united states. he has never been a player in our diplomacy. >> reporter: apprentice all-stars. >> he has worn wedding dresses. he gets piercings, tattoos. he loves the publicity, whether it's good or bad. >> reporter: experts say this latest move, just weeks after north korea defiantly conducted a third nuclear test, could actually complicate the diplomatic process. >> shows s

. the former chicago bulls told abc news and this week with george stephanopoulos that kim jong un wants to talk to the president. >> he wants obama to do one thing, call him. he wants a call from president obama? >> that's right. he told me that he said if you can, dennis, i don't want to do war. i don't want to do war. he said that to me. >> shepard: apparently they did not discuss the millions of north koreans who were scarfing and did not discuss the nation's prison camps for political opponents. jonathan hunt is here. what other insight did we get from the worm? >> mr. rodman, once again, declared kim the younger to be awesome. he said that he, rodman, loves kim the younger, that they are best of friends. he had no coherent response to any of the questions about north korea's appalling human rights records, the number of north koreans who are starving, the number who are held in prison camps. instead, rodman said, that president obama and the rest of us should give kim a chance. listen. >> the kid is only 28 years old. 28. he is not his dad. not his grandpa. he is 28 years old. >> s
korea. take a look at this. you see people nearly weeping we motion and troops run toward kim jong-un apparently in a near frenzy to honor him. they go waist deep into the water. they run right in. it happened during his recent visit to the border with south korea. north korea, meanwhile, is ramping up the threats. it's testing a dangerous new missile that has a potential range of 3,000 miles and it's even warning of a preemptive nuclear strike. >>> and from overseas to outer space, if you've ever wanted to see a comet without a telescope or binoculars, you might get your chance next week. it could be visible with the naked eye in the northern hemisphere on tuesday just after sunset. it's been visible with a telescope for a while now in the southern hemisphere. scientists say naked-eye comets happen once every five to ten years. i think it makes a space geek out of all of us. >> we're all space geeks when you think about the asteroids, the meteors and the comet. >> that's right. if the comet isn't enough for you, we do have another asteroid headed our way. >> yes, we do. it won't hit
when they look at north korea. they were hoping that the new leader, kim jong-un, who took over after his father died, would be more willing to work with the united states. but that is not the case. in fact, they have looked at the situation in north korea, and say that it really appears as though they are moving in the opposite direction, more bellicose, more isolated, so they are watching the country very closely. president obama, of course, has mapped out an ambitious second term agenda which includes immigration reform. a new gun control legislation. but a lot of people say that the situation in north korea, and also iran, could wind up dominating a lot of his second term. alex? >> okay. kristen, thank you very much for that from the white house. >> thank you. >> about ten minutes or so from now we're going to talk with congresswoman loretta sanchez. she's here in studio. she's of course a member of the homeland security committee and we're going to ask her directly how serious is north korea in terms of being a threat here to the u.s. homeland? >>> meantime, in less than an hour
. it seems to me that the worry level of the united states has gone up since we got kim jong-un. why is that? because we have sort of always thought yes, north korea, it's a rogue state and it's private and we don't know what they're doing but now there seems to be some sort of urgency about their nuclear capabilities. can they reach u.s. shores? >> they certainly have a ballistic missile that can reach u.s. shores. they recently had their third nuclear test and you know, there was lots of speculation about the test, lots of warning to the north koreans not to do it. they have a 28-year-old leader who is trying to prove himself to the military and the military eager to have a saber rattling for their own self-interest and the combination of that is proving to be very deadly. the sheer threat that they'd openly threaten a nuclear attack against the united states is problem enough but their military movement along the dmz, the demilitarized zone in north korea a whole new set of problems for us. it's the largest military in the world still in uniform. this is something that we have to take ser
to do this and broker a relationship between kim jong-un and obama shouldn't it have been metta world peace? really? [ laughter ] i mean dennis rodman? >> peter: metta world peace elbows kim jong-un in the head. >> namewise it would have worked. i'm look forward to seeing what hbo comes out of this with. they were over there shooting this supposedly. >> peter: this is for a show for hbo being done by vice, a magazine and they have a web site. it is really good stuff. i have a travel dvd that they've done before. so i'm really excited to see this. >> it was great once they explained to dennis he wasn't in south korea and he wasn't going to see psi. at first he thought he was going to see the gangnam style guy. he tweeted and said dude, wrong place. >> peter: i want to talk about a local story here. joe flacco. he has quite the contract. how much is he getting paid now? >> supposedly, it is the richest contract in nfl history. now, the nfl money is sort of like the money on rodman's jacket. you can't really take it into starbucks and buy a venti anything with it. it is not real. these c
north korean leader kim jong-un. in an interview with the uk sun rodman called him, i guess they're on a first basis, a big kid who loves disco, michael jackson and basketball. rodman says kim asked him to deliver a message to president obama, if we can talk, we can work this out. toes are his words. rodman claims the military elite is behind all that tough talk. he also revealed that kim and his wife reportedly have a second child. a baby girl. i know, john, look at the look on his face. >> i'm still thinking of these 15 minutes for dennis rodman have gone on for an hour and 15 minutes. it's too much. i don't know if we knew kim jong-un had a second child. maybe dennis rodman is providing key intelligence now. although i doubt it. >> absolutely. >> dennis rodman providing key intelligence. >> those words have never been spoken. ahead on "starting point" march madness begins. and it is already starting off mad, and frankly bad for me. >> i am actually way ahead of you in brackets. they're used to hoots and hollers, why these ball girls got booed. i had enough of feeling embarrass
player back from north korea, where he met with basketball fan and iron fisted leader kim jong-un. rodman says he loves the guy, even in the face, of course, of all those pesky prison camps and starving masses, for heaven's sakes. the worm, apparently, is even dishing out an invite to president obama. >> he want obama to do one thing, call him. he wants a call from president obama? >> that's right. he told me that. he said, if you can, dennis, i don't want to do war. i don't want to do war. he said that to me. >> did you say, why don't you pick up the phone and call president obama? >> no, you know, it's a different story. it's a different story because, guess what, the kid is only 28 years old. 28. >> no one's ever going to confuse rodman with being secretary of state. we'll just put that out there. but what about his gushing praise for this guy? is rodman a pawn? is he a peace maker? is he just another punch line? is l.z.? >> was that a "saturday night live" skit? >> no. >> because i just simply can't believe we're still talking about dennis rodman in this capacity. look, you can't expe

is questioning the stability of north korean leader kim jong-un. congressman mike rogers, the chairman of the house intelligence committee, appearing on cnn's "state of the union." >> you have a 28-year-old leader, who is trying to prove himself to the military, and the military eager to have a saber rattling for their own self-interest. >> some analysts are now openly questioning whether or not kim jong-un is even in charge of north korea or if it's the military that's really in control now. >>> louisiana governor is uninjured in a car accident last night in baton rouge. bobby jindal was on the way home from his son's soccer game when state police say a truck made an illegal u-turn and sideswiped his vehicle. he says the governor is fine but a state trooper went to the hospital with some minor injuries. >>> one -- here we go. >> oh! >> so success of sorts. a controlled implosion near austin, texas, brought the old bridge down. but what you can't see is that shrapnel from this blast cut a fiber optic cable. that knocked out cell phone and some land line service in three 911 centers. ve

missile attack. what the greater fear is kim jong u.n., kim the younger trying to prove himself and the military commanders trying to flex their power. some experts worry that that could lead to an attack not against the united states directly but against one of our allies, japan or south korea. shep? what did the united nations do today that is supposed to help prevent all of this. >> they introduced a series of measure in this security council resolution that are designed to stop north korea importing or crucially exporting nuclear technologies and stop the flow of cash that goes along with those kinds of exchanges of technology according to the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice, these are some of the strongest punishments the security council has ever put together. listen. >> taken together these sanctions will bite and bite hard. they increase north korea's isolation and raise the cost to north korea's leaders of defying the international community. >> now, importantly here, china has not just signed on to this resolution but, in fact, drafted it. but their words will b
